Heterosexism
Heterosexism (December 1993)
An Ethical Challenge
Patricia Beattie Jung - Author
Ralph F. Smith - Author

In this ground-breaking book the authors show that the prevailing sexual ethic is no longer useful. It presumes as ideal, a uniform morality based on a limited understanding of human sexuality. Heterosexism is revealed to be a system of prejudice that both grows out of and supports this ethic. It produces various forms of discrimination, particularly those against gay and lesbian people, that cannot be justified.

The authors investigate scr...(Read More)
 
 
Becoming an Agent
Becoming an Agent (December 1993)
Patterns and Dynamics for Shaping Your Life
Larry Cochran - Author
Joan Laub - Author

This book is about individuals who have made dramatic changes in their lives. In the beginning, these people were living as patients or victims of circumstance. In the end, they were living as agents, free to shape the courses of their lives, to choose, set goals, plan--to make things happen, rather than to experience life as events happening to them.

The authors describe what is involved in such remarkable transformations. They identify a...(Read More)
 
 
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge (November 1993)
Don Byrd - Author

"Don Byrd's book presents postmodernism as a continuation of the metaphysical skeptical tradition, reaching its dead end with deconstruction. Byrd's alternative in literary studies is a return to poetry as a revitalization of language. The book is very learned, and written with verve and vigor." -- Mihai I. Spariosu, The University of Georgia

"This is an important, provocative book. At a time when poetics--especially that of the dif...(Read More)

This book explores the convergence of psychoanalysis and Asian thought. It explores key theoretical issues. What role does paradox play in psychological transformations? How can the oriental emphasis on attaining "no-self" be reconciled with the western emphasis on achieving an integrated self? The book also inquires into pragmatic questions concerning the nature of psychological change and the practice of psychotherapy. The Taoist I Ching...(Read More)
 
 
At-Risk Students
At-Risk Students (July 1993)
Portraits, Policies, Programs, and Practices
Robert Donmoyer - Editor
Raylene Kos - Editor

"Without coming to grips with the at-risk student problem, school reorganization, new subject matter, instructional methods, and other forms of curriculum reform are all hollow. As one reads the material in this book, it becomes very clear that larger societal issues are at stake, and need to be solved. Oh, that the "Education President" would/could read this kind of material as a basis of making national policy." -- Nelson L. Haggerson, Arizona St...(Read More)
 
 
Families and Schools in a Pluralistic Society
Families and Schools in a Pluralistic Society (February 1993)
Nancy Feyl Chavkin - Editor

Recent research identifies increased parent involvement in education as a promising method to bolster student achievement. Statistics show that while many traditional white, middle class families have found ways to be involved with their children's schooling, our nation now needs to find ways to include more minority parents in their children's education. Most educators and parents would agree that minority parent involvement in education is essen...(Read More)
 
 
The Degeneracy Crisis and Victorian Youth
The Degeneracy Crisis and Victorian Youth (January 1993)
Thomas E. Jordan - Author

"Jordan reminds us that history, policy, and economics are great shaping forces in terms of setting ceilings on what children can be. There is much here that is important to scholars in child growth and development. But most important is that we are reminded of the plight of poor children today as well as yesterday." -- Margaret Yonemura, State University of New York, Binghamton

A book in the ecology of child development, The Degeneracy ...(Read More)

Blind People
Blind People (August 1992)
The Private and Public Life of Sightless Israelis
Shlomo Deshen - Author

"This book provides an extraordinary look into the lives of sightless people. It is both a deeply moving account of the difficulties and contradictions with which sightless people struggle while at the same time showing how the lives of such people are produced by a certain constellation of cultural and social factors. Deshen has done a superb job of depicting in rich ethnographic detail the experience of being sightless while at the same time mak...(Read More)

Redefining Competence and Femininity
Maggie Mulqueen - Author

By redefining current theories of competence motivation and sex-role identity, this work offers a powerful reconceptualiztion of what it means to be a competent woman in today's society. Analyses of case studies of competent women lead to a new theory that enables women to attain positive self-esteem based on internally desired and determined criteria. This new theory challenges prevailing theories of competence motivation and sex-role identity d...(Read More)
